In the world of Engineering and Technology, each day sees a spate of new concepts and applications, and each passing day seems to make them obsolete. This galloping pace of technological evolution has a direct bearing on practical applications, making it mandatory for today's engineers to keep abreast of the latest developments. I have always had an inherent and overwhelming desire to design and innovate and this propelled me to opt for a career in engineering.
In Computers, the tremendous scope for research, whose application potential could provide tremendous productivity gains, has always fascinated me. As a student in the final year of undergraduate study for a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer Science & Engineering, I look to graduate studies to refine my knowledge and skills in my areas of interest.
My strong academic record provides the foundation for the work I hope to do. During my schooling, I enrolled at the Center for training in Computers for a Diploma in Computer Applications to pick up the rudiments of computer programming. I completed the 5-year course with a distinction. I excelled in Mathematics (91%) in the 10th grade Secondary School Certificate (SSC) exam. I also obtained 96% in Math and 95% in Computers in the ISC (High School) conducted in 2000. For this, I received the Certificate of Merit and a 4-year scholarship for under-graduation from Hyderabad Archdiocese Social Service Society for excellent performance in Class XII, which I used, to set up a scholarship fund for students in need.
My academic experiences confirmed that my future lay in Engineering. However, I wanted to determine how my aptitude might mesh with a potential career in my chosen field of Computers. So I enrolled in a six-month Diploma Course in Java Pro (Core Java and Advanced Java) at Comp-u-learn, a branch of an American Institute, before my under-graduation, and did well enough to further fuel my interest in Computer Science. During this time I also...
